Graph'It Marker Challenge - Create a Background Effect

Hi Everyone 

Time for another challenge over at Graph-It Markers.  Our theme this time is to create a background effect. 

Here's my card 


The image I used is a Ballerina by Morgan Fitzsimons at MorgansFaeWorld on Etsy. 

Here's a close-up of the image


Graph'It Markers Used 

Skin - 4170, 4125, 7120
Hair - 9404, 0000
Dress - 1180, 1110, 1250
Ballet Slippers - 4135, 5140
Background - 8240, 7220, 1170 with Mix'It Fluid 


*************

Background Photo Tutorial 

You will need 
Graph'It Markers (three colours makes a good mix)
Mix It Spray
Tim Holtz Ink Applicator and Felt 
Photo Paper - Glossy or Satin finish (I used Satin finish)



1. Using the chisel tip of your marker, dab ink randomly onto the felt



2. Take your second colour and dab the felt

3. Take your third colour and continuing dabbing



4. Make sure you fill all the gaps with ink

5. Liberally spray the inked felt with Mix'It Spray



6. Dab all over your paper with the ink filled applicator


7. Continue dabbing until you have the desired coverage.  The more you dab, the more mixed the finish background will be 


Here's the finished background
